One of the annual entertainment highlights of the HCM City social calendar! Planning to buy tickets? Reserve your tables or seats now � this event always sells out early!  Last year 500 folks made this event a charity success, raising US$22,000 for AusCham's venerable charity program which has funded sustainable educational, vocational and medical projects for the past six years. "Old-timers" remember with fondness not only last year's Intergalactic Ball but the riotous Moulin Rouge, Bond and Beyond, Chicago and Dreams events before it. This year's "trip" will journey back to the 60s and 70s � with music, dancing, wild fashions and scandalous plots! Such is this event's reputation that every year people return from overseas just to be part of the fun and to support one of Vietnam's most important charities.
